We've always had a weakness for high-quality retro golf wear in bright colors (Rosasen, we're looking at you) because let's face it, if we're going to play golf, we're not wearing standard country club attire. Check out what the good folks at Lyle & Scott are up to. - MQ, WATM
The great game of golf has been integral to our identity since the launch of the first Lyle & Scott golf collection in 1960. Some of the sport’s top-ranking players have chosen to wear our clothing to look sharp while making record-breaking shots from Tony Jacklin to Greg Norman to Arnold Palmer.
This year, 140 years after the foundation of Lyle & Scott, and over fifty since the introduction of our golf wear, we’re launching the 1960 collection; a premium line rooted in our sports heritage that proudly commemorates the iconic Golden Eagle. So-called after the golfing feat of completing a course two shots under par, the Golden Eagle symbolises unrivalled excellence and first appeared on Lyle & Scott garments in 1960.
The 1960 collection, a 26-piece range featuring v-neck and crew neck jumpers, polos and cardigans, all rendered in a palette of bright pastels, celebrates the distinctive style of our initial golf collections. Colour is at 1960′s core, with the collection’s vibrant palette including yellow, pink, navy, lilac, pale blue, red, grey, black, green and white. Argyle, the definitive golf pattern, features prominently, while slim-fitting silhouettes and dropped saddle shoulders are carried throughout the collection.
Made entirely in Great Britain from quality cotton, the 1960 collection is available internationally at selected independent retailers and online.
